Some of the applications that show as In production are not (temporary work copies).
How do I reset these copies as not In Production?
Mark is correct an application is in product if it has 3 or more users or if the application is over 500 KB and over 90 days old. Essentially an app can be out of production if it holds data but isn't accessible by more then 2 users (for example as a historical archive)
These rules do not seem to be working in my case. I have five archives where we recently removed all users except 2. They all have around 2MB of data and are all over 90 days old. Only one is marked as not production. I'd like to set the remaining 4 to not production as well.
Any hints would be appreciated.
They allow some leeway so that while an app is initially under development with just a bit of test data and only 2 users (typically the App developer and maybe 1 user who is testing), then it does not count against your app limits. But once the app appears to have been deployed, then it counts.
You are right that while it is nice sometimes to be able to archive an app and hive off old data, that does count against your app limits.
